  5. A collection of British Army manuals published between 1995 and 1997 for trainers to craft a generic enemy similar to U.S. Army's OPFOR. They describe three types of forces:

    - Basic Forces: a carbon-copy of a late 1980s Soviet Army-style force oriented towards Gorbachev's defensive doctrine
    - Mobile Forces: based off of early 1990s Russian plans for an elite "Mobile Forces"
    - ROWEN: Generic third-world enemy

    While these manuals were published in the 1990s and after the Soviet Union fell, the first two forces described are useful references for Cold War-era scenarios, as they contain a more sophisticated understanding of Soviet/Russian-style tactics and techniques than early-mid-1980s publications. The Mobile Forces publications will be useful for depicting Soviet OMG or forward detachment formations.
